Mayan Blue by Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason

Well, paint me blue! Mayan Blue is a tour-de-force through blood and bodies. I love indigenous history, especially Mayan history. Don't believe the hype? Then, you should read this book to see what I'm talking about.

Professor Lipton discovers the Mayans had migrated north to Georgia. This is a once in a lifetime discovery. Professor Lipton goes missing. His associate and a group of students search for him. Mayan hell is unleashed on the small team of students. The Sisters of Slaughter let the bodies hit the floor. There is plenty of blood and gore to go around. The team of students must face the pissed off gods and their owl-headed servants as they travel deeper into the labyrinth that is the newly discovered Mayan temple.

The killing scenes are great. The scenes are stomach -wrenching and they will make you grimace. With that being said, I didn't get attached to these characters. I didn't get to learn much about them before they were slaughtered. These things did not take away from the great debut novel that is Mayan Blue.

This book is short, yet ferocious. Mayan Blue reads like an 80s horror movie. At times throughout this book, I was yelling at the characters for stupid decisions. The Sisters of Slaughter will have you reading late into the night, though!

This is my first time reading the Sisters of Slaughter, but it definitely won't be my last!

I highly recommend this book to fans of horror!

You can get your copy here!

5/5 sacrificial stars!
